The Feminist Task Force of the Social Responsibilities Round Table of the ALA (wow, we librarians sure now how to complicate things) comes up every year with the Amelia Bloomer List, a list of great feminist books for kids. The 2009 list has been released! These books all showcase girls and women who go against the grain, stand up for something they believe in, are courageous and unique and cool. The books include fiction and non-fiction, and the list includes offerings for kids off all ages. This list is well worth checking out if you have kids (boys or girls), if you buy books for a library, or if you teach. Man, I don’t do any of these things and I still want half of these books.
